Rise Up presents Zion Train + support
Fri. 14 October 2011 | 8:30 PM
Zion Train are Dub/Dance pioneers and have been undisputed leaders in the genre for the past 2 decades. The band were heavily involved in alternative and DIY underground culture in the UK during the 1990s as well as being purveyors of the finest Roots Reggae music throughout this period. They are one of the finest live dub acts on the planet and promoted the practice of dynamic onstage dub mixing which they perform alongside acoustic instruments and the best vocalists.
Zion Train have been one of the planet’s most prolific groups, along with a mammoth recorded output and innumerable production credits, remixes and song writing collaborations they have produced magazines, CD-ROMs, Internet sites and built sound systems. Their early releases were on their own Universal Egg label, until in 1995 they signed to China Records. They released the world’s first promotional dub music video for the Get Ready single and caused a furore with the publicity campaign for their Homegrown Fantasy album. Back on their own Universal Egg label since 1999, they have continued to release quality dub, electronica and world dance music. Their work from the past 20 years still sounds fresh to today’s discerning ears.
